Summary
This book comes straight from the heart of the Jakes family to yours. Bishop Jakes, pastor of The Potter's House, shares personal stories about growing up in his mother's home, revealing the time-honored lessons and values she taught him. Woven into his personal vignettes are inspirational biblical stories about mothers, heartfelt advice for modern-day moms, and testimonials from other prominent African-American figures about the importance of motherhood. Driven by the Bible and stories straight from his own life and offering praise, inspiration, and instruction, T. D. Jakes has written a book for daughters and sons, brothers and sisters, parents and grandparents--and anyone else who has ever felt the mighty power of a mother's love.--From publisher description
